Accused Penn State Higher-Ups Face Perjury Hearing

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Two of Penn State's top administrators are heading to court today to fight perjury charges and allegations they didn't respond properly nine years ago after getting a report that a young boy had been sodomized in the football team's showers.

Gary Schultz and Tim Curley's preliminary hearing in Harrisburg will provide more of the alleged evidence against them. A district judge must determine if their cases should go to county court for trial.

They're charged with perjury and failure to report child sexual abuse allegations against former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky.

Schultz was a vice president at the university and had overseen the campus police. Curley was its long-serving athletic director.

Since they were arrested six weeks ago, Schultz has retired and Curley has been on administrative leave. They deny the charges.
